I had no idea that the heat would eventually be the one thing that I couldn’t live without
I have always been pretty athletic, so when I was visiting a friend and she invited me to take a yoga class, i didn’t ask any questions or think twice about saying yes. I had never taken an actual yoga class before but I was confident that I could do it. I was a little bit shocked by the concept of heated yoga, but I had no idea that the heat would eventually be the one thing that I couldn’t live without. So I made it through class and when I returned home I immediately looked up and found a studio in Richmond! yay- I knew that I would do this yoga for the rest of my life from the first week, now that doesn’t mean I enjoy it- I’m the first person to admit that class is a whirlwind for me- I always have a positive attitude, but it never gets easy. I used to be discouraged by the things I couldn’t do with ease, but going to training gave me an entirely different perspective. Bikram says the people who struggle and don’t give up have so much more to gain and I get that now. being able to do all the postures is definitely the ultimate goal, but the journey to get there is what this yoga is all about for me. bikram yoga is just like life, you can never appreciate the good, if you’ve never struggled to get through the not so good.
